    but apple continued to develop telephony ideas throughout its history.
    knowledge navigator was a wireless phone concept, the shipping product
    GeoPort was a telephony device. Apple developed several software only
    phones, all long before the iPhone became so successful.

    the difference is, i know Apple's history better than anyone posting
    here, so this knowledge confuses many people, mainly the so called "cell
    experts" which simply don't understand apple's deep, lifelong interest
    in wireless communications.

    they simply have no idea... i do...

    So they have no experience with hardware phones, only second rate software
    solutions. Ehanks for clarifying.

    Hey, Oxford: who is Adele Goldberg, and what crucial role did she play
    in Steve Jobs's world?

    Since you know Apple's history better than anyone posting here,
    CERTAINLY you know the answer to THIS one.

    Especially since the key to the answer was SPOON FED to you awhile back.

    yes, and that is because on a Mac you only turn it on ONCE, then let the
    sophisticated hardware and software allow it to sleep / wake for the
    rest of its life...

    but you are still using a PC so wouldn't know much about sophisticated
    computing equipment such as Apple builds.

    I love quality. I love functionality. And that is why I don't have an
    Apple.

    I have a lifelong interest in space exploration. By your standards,
    that would qualify me to run NASA.

    THat's simply proof that computers have been made for the
    developmentally challenged, such as yourself.

    After a world wide search going on for nearly 2 months, 24/7 by 1000's
    of people, nobody has come up with the secret you keep.

    Yes, who is Adele Goldberg and what did she do for Apple/SJ? You were
    close with Milk and Cookies... but you might have been wrong if it was
    actually Punch and Cookies.

    So if you don't know and the world doesn't know, it confirms she did
    nothing for Apple/SJ.

    It was? Nobody on usenet knows, Adele certainly doesn't know, only YOU
    know.

    Please provide your long hidden secret... everyone is DYING to know!

    I'm sure we'll all get a great chuckle when you finally tell everyone.

    He did not want Jobs to see the famous Xerox tour... and would only do so if
    under "orders". Atkinson has described that tour as an inspiration and as
    something that helped them know they were already on the right track. Jobs
    and company understood the importance of the graphical system far better
    than did the Xerox management.

    not sure what you mean, apple has every portion in place except for the
    foldable screen and a bit of AI.

    wireless is there, www is there, built in camera is there, voice rec is
    there, multi-touch screen is there, ichat is there.

    and apple/sj popularized it all...

    but thanks for playing DTC!

    Why is he doing this search trying to figure this all out ?
    Did he not say he knows all when it comes to apple ?

    And yet Apple was very early in the home networking environment (did
    *anyone* beat them to that... think of the old PhoneNet adapters) and they
    pretty much created the desktop publishing industry.

    Sorry, stupid. Apple did not popularize wireless, www, cameras, voice
    recording or chat.

    Wikipedia entry:

    Adele Goldberg (born July 22, 1945) is a computer scientist who wrote or
    co-wrote books on the programming language Smalltalk-80. In the 1970's
    she worked for Xerox's PARC laboratory on the Xerox Alto. She refused to
    give Steve Jobs a tour of the laboratory unless her superiors would
    order her to, which they eventually did.

    She is currently working for Neometron, Inc., of Palo Alto, California.
    Goldberg was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and grew up in Chicago, Illinois.
    In 1994 she was inducted as a Fellow of the Association for Computing
    Machinery.
